Leopold Museum - Anton Romako: The Beginning of Modernism

Anton Romako is among those artists who opened up new painterly possibilities of interpreting the visible world in a visionary and intuitive manner. To this day, his work has lost none of the disconcerting fascination with which he subtly changed conventional manners of depiction from 1875 towards a more meticulous, psychologizing interpretation.
The retrospective shown in the spring of 2018 at the Leopold Museum showcases outstanding works from the oeuvre of this unusual painter.
